New Construction Homes in Dorchester

Tucked away just a few miles inland from historic Charleston, South Carolina, Dorchester County offers history and modern conveniences a bit further off of the beaten path.  While Charleston’s sights and sounds draw crowds of tourists, Dorchester’s attractions are no less inviting and much more serene.  Home to the Francis Beidler Forest, this area offers recreation available nowhere else.  Experience the thousand-year-old Bald cypress trees within the 1800 acres of preserved swampland as you take a stroll along the boardwalk trail, or enjoy a guided canoe trip through the swamp, one of only two old growth preserves in the state.

Learn what life was like in the early days of Dorchester, once a trading town before the Revolutionary War, when you visit Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site or the Summerville Dorchester Museum.  Experience the calm, soothing waters of the Edisto River, strolling along the banks or taking a canoe or kayak for a leisurely trip downstream.  If you prefer dry land, visit the lovely Azalea Park, with its twelve acres of paths, ponds, and fountains.

Locals appreciate the excellent education provided by the Dorchester County School Districts, which boasts many highly rated elementary, middle, and high schools, including Rollings Middle School of the Arts, a frequent recipient of the Palmetto Gold award for its achievements.    With high school students’ SAT and ACT scores consistently exceeding state averages and millions of dollars of scholarships awarded to local students each year, you can rest assured that your child’s education is well in hand.

Working adults have plenty of opportunities in the area, whose thriving industries include automotive companies such as BMW and Michelin and boat manufacturers to help fill the Atlantic waters.  Bioscience companies draw from the well-educated local workforce as well to encourage research and development in the field, thanks largely to the Medical University of South Carolina.  Local companies work on medical equipment, diagnostic capabilities, and pharmaceutical trials and manufacturing.

When you aren’t at work or school, you’ll want to enjoy local dining and retail.  Go healthy at the Five Loaves Café or get a taste of Greece at the Opa Café, which also offers a small market.  Try out Palmetto Flats, locally owned and operated with a focus on Southern cuisine.

If Dorchester County sounds like home to you, explore your options on NewHomeSource.com.  There are currently homes available in many communities in the county from a variety of builders, so no matter your price range or desired features, you can find exactly what you need.  There are homes to suit every budget, from the mid $100’s to the upper $400’s with as many as six bedrooms.  The range of styles, floorplans, and features is broad, with Ashton Woods Homes, David Weekley, and CalAtlantic Homes among the most prolific builders in the area.  Narrow your search with our easy-to-use features and get on your way to your new home.
